Fauna - Fantasy Pheromone Blend
Fauna ….A phantasy pheromone incense….
This is incense devoted to our beloved four legged ones...A scent like a furry mane in sunlight
A blend inspired by the animals I love, soft and very warm with nutty sweet balsamic, pheromone-like notes. Fauna came out of a dream like a curious feral creature - And the moment I placed it on the heater I was in love. It is uniquely animalic and comforting....Natural, light and amber/musk like.
You know when you inhale the ruff of a beloved 4 legged basking in the sun and feel the scent rather than just smell it? That is what I was trying to capture in Fauna, not a musty or goaty odor, but the mysterious pheromones they share.
This blend soothes and opens the heart, and I like to think it will bring you a warm fuzzy, purring, incense experience.
Fauna contains no Animal products except Bee Propolis which perfectly adds a sweet animalic note.
Something happened when I combined these resins and woods and balsams, something so “Fauna”.
I hope you will enjoy the experience it as much I did the creation.
